Young children learn the best by doing, being able to relate, and often through games. By learning by doing, children’s experiences become more meaningful, and they retain their knowledge.
For example, cooking contains a lot of maths without us even thinking about it. And the kitchen is a place filled with shapes, measurements, time and following logical steps – all things maths concepts.
That’s why cooking with your children is such a good way for you to incorporate learning maths into a daily task without it having to take extra time.
We have summarized five maths activities to make it easier for you as a parent to practice maths in the kitchen with your child.
